Yield: serves 4

Ingredients

  • 12 ramps, trimmed
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 34 cup olive oil
  • 34 cup minced parsley
  • 14 cup white wine vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to medium-high. (Alternatively, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high.)
